I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

Private French Teacher

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

Thanks to Philippe, I was able speak & (importantly) understand French during a recent trip to Paris! That is the ultimate "success story" for me (and anyone who wants to learn to confidently use French in day to day life). I took very helpful group lessons with him for beg/int levels, and then started private lessons to enable me to focus on areas of particular need & interest. Philippe has enabled me to comfortably speak, understand, read & write in French - no easy task! I appreciate that he hones in on exactly what each individual needs and wants to learn. He is also very kind, genial, and patient always! In addition to the time spent in class, he sends various types of information - grammar pointers, news stories (written & audio), French TV, etc - all of which allow the student to learn both in & out of class -- and in a very engaging, pleasant way. I am continuing on with the lessons to truly master the language and my ability to interact using all forms of communication. Philippe listens carefully and tailors lessons (& supplemental info) to make sure the student reaches his/her goals. Above all, it is a worthwhile and fun journey to having confidence & competency in French language and culture. I recommend Philippe's lessons most highly!
Grace
Philippe is a wonderful French teacher. We've been doing French for several months and my language abilities have noticeably improved. He knows your limits and when to push past them. Not only is he a great teacher, he's also hilarious, which makes making mistakes more funny than embarrassing.
Joy
Philippe is a great teacher. I am trying to regain my French and get to the point of conversation. He is always looking for ways that fit the way I learn and is always encouraging and enthusiastic.

I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent French tutor and teacher. Being born and raised in Belgium it was not optional in my Flemish or English-speaking schools to not learn French from 5-10th grade. French was the most difficult for me to learn how to write but I am grateful for the French tutor I had growing up. Therefore, I want to do the same for others. I truly believe in the power of believing in others because eventually, they could excel in a subject they never thought they could which has a big impact on one's self-esteem and opportunities. It would be my honor to help you grow and learn French!

I first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

"Phillipe’s greatest assets as an instructor are his adaptive, tailored approach; and his business/professional vocabulary (which “typical” French professors often don’t use or understand, in my experience). As a French national and native-French speaker, Phillipe was also able to identify some pronunciation issues that were affecting my clarity in speech.

Adaptive, Responsive Approach: From the beginning of our classes, Phillipe made it clear that we would target my unique learning needs. He then proposed a process to ensure that I provided him with critical feedback (every few lessons) so that he could adjust course.

This approach ensured that we maintained a common understanding of how I learned best and what areas we would target each week.

Turbo-Charged Vocabulary: Having worked in private sector and government, I was grateful that Phillipe helped expand my vocabulary in the domains of economics, history, social science, and regulation/public policy. (I have found that other French professors often struggle with the business/professional vocabulary that I need to used on a daily basis.)

A PRO for most, Phillipe did not get bogged down in grammar drills or exercises. Instead he takes the approach that worked the best for me -- to speak, correct, and speak, speak, speak."
